    This question may sound stupid but it interests me so i'll just ask
    it:

    Can i put the ACUVUE 2 COLOURS (Opaque- 8.3mm BC) soft contact lens on
    top of my Focus night and day lens (BC:8.4mm) , and wear it, in order
    to create a "Coloured" Focus night and day lens ??? If not, why ???
    i only intend to wear it while being awake, but,
    what about sleeping with that combination in my eye ???

    Why not just wear the Acuvues if you want coloured eyes? What do you hope
    to gain by wearing both? You may find that the Acuvue do not fit well over
    the N&D. If you are doing this because the N&D are comfy and the Acuvue
    are not, the comfort of the combo will likely match or be worse than that
    of Acuvue.

    Wearing the two is not recommended for overnight as you would get less
    oxygen than with the Acuvue alone.

    I know that the DK/t of this combination would be quite low...
    something like 20 DK/t.
    But what i'm saying is: can i actually combine between both lenses to
    create a colored lens which fit my eyes and is colored ??? That way i
    can gain the comfort of the N&D lens and the fact that my eyes' color
    is changed. Assuming i don't sleep in my lenses - can i combine
    between the two lenses ??? is it healthy ? i just wanna know that
    there is no prohibition on doing it , or some precaution i should
    know, before doing it.... so is there ?

  4. Would a proclear lens be less safe for the health of the cornea than an RGP lens?
